Articulating screen

Articulating screen

An articulating screen is a built-in small electronic visual display which is not fixed, but rather can be repositioned using a hinge or pivot. The articulating screen is known under different other names such as flip-out screen, flip screen, adjustable screen, articulated screen, or hinged screen. According to the way it moves, there are four main types:The display moves around one axis, so that it only tilts. It is called tilting screen or tiltable screen. The display tilts horizontally both up and down and also vertically. This type is called double-hinged tilting screen, two-axis tilting screen, three-direction tilting screen or screen with 3-way tilt. The display moves around two axes which are at a right angle to each other, so that the screen both tilts and swivels. This type is called swivel screen. Other names for this type are vari-angle screen, fully articulated screen, fully articulating screen, rotating screen, multi-angle screen, variable angle screen, flip-out-and-twist screen, twist-and-tilt screen and swing-and-tilt screen. The display is mounted on a fully-articulating hinge that itself is attached to a tilting plate. Such display can be extended out from the back of the camera, ensuring it stays clear of the camera's left-mounted ports when flipping it out to the side. This type of articulating screen is called tilt-and-articulating screen. The display moves into a variety of angles; it tilts horizontally and vertically and also rotates to a certain extent while staying aligned with the lens axis. It still can not be turned all the way up, down or to the side to be seen from the front of the camera for self-portraits. This type of articulating screen is called cross-tilt screen, flexible-tilt screen or flex-tilt screen.

Features

The camera is marketed by Olympus as the world's smallest DSLR with built-in image stabilization (IS). It is 130 mm × 94 mm × 60 mm in size and weighs 475 grams (1.047 lb), body only (533 g or 1.175 lb with battery and a Compact Flash memory card).[1]

As with all Four Thirds cameras it has a crop factor of 2.0.

Apart from being sold as camera body only, the E-620 is available with three lens configurations:

  • The Zuiko 14–42 f/3.5–5.6 lens
  • The 14–42 lens and the Zuiko 40–150 f/4–5.6 telephoto zoom
  • The extremely compact 25 mm f/2.8 "pancake" lens

Unlike the E-420 and E-520 it has an Olympus-designed battery grip, HLD-5. The E-620 also has its own underwater housing, PT-E06, submersible down to 40 meters.[1]

E-600

In August 2009 a slightly down-specced budget version of the E-620 was announced by Olympus, this model was called the E-600 and was available to the North American market only. The features not present on the E-600 are the illuminated function buttons and all but four of the art filters, other than that the E600 is an E-620 and has gradually spread out of North America through grey imports of both new and used cameras and is often thought of as a better value option to the E-620.
